Reviews:

“The music is well made and are justly popular with major orchestras. Composed between 1986 and 2000, these open hearted pieces are symphonic in style and spirit but judiciously mix in jazz and pop idioms as well. Bridge’s recording is warm and appealing.” - American Record Guide

“The performances are more than solid, as one would expect in music designed to showcase instruments. If you are looking for a new disc of children’s music, try this pleasing collection for young and old alike, from the pen of one of the best in the current business.” - Fanfare
